(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The American Cancer Society has announced new guidelines to fight lung cancer.

The disease kills about 160,000 people in America every year.

Now, new research suggests that number can be cut by 20 percent with proper screening.

The American Cancer Society is now recommending CT scans every year for high-risk smokers.

Those are defined as people between 55 and 74-years-old, who smoke or have smoked the equivalent of a pack a day for 30 years.

"On the CT scan, if you see a nodule, that may be cancer or maybe not, it's the evaluation of those non-cancerous nodules that's the real risk," said Dr. Michael Pollack with Montclair Radiology. "40 percent of patients who get these lung cancer screenings we find something to evaluate further."

The American Cancer Society's new screening guidelines include current smokers and those who have quit within the last 15 years.
